In a statement released, the club said: “NorthEast United FC would hereby like to confirm that the club has parted ways with Head Coach Rober Jarni and his coaching staff through mutual agreement. The decision has been taken keeping in mind the best interests of the Club and our recent performances in the ISL.”
“NorthEast United FC would like to thank Mr Jarni and his team for their service over the last five months.”
